Blood Testing Made Easy


Rapid and Reliable Testing with WHEATON Dropping Bottle and Extended Dropping Assembly

An aliquot of blood is collected with a glass pipette and dispensed into a collection plate or well plate. An aliquot of assay buffer is then dispensed by a plastic dropping bottle and mixed with the blood sample. In most cases, a Wheaton (LDPE) dropping bottle with extended dropping assembly is used to provide accurate and reproducible results. Then rests for a set period of time, and the results are recorded.


PRODUCT: Dropping Bottle and Extended Dropping Assembly

Wheaton (LDPE) dropping bottles with extended dropping assemblies are designed to produce accurate and reproducible drop sizes. Due to the angled cut-out of the dropping tip, liquid samples are dispensed in droplet form one drop at a time allowing for error-free sample dispensing. The dropping bottles are made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) which is a thermoplastic with high chemical resistance to acids, alcohols, bases, esters, aldehydes and ketones. The volumes range from 1-125mL and the available extended dropping assemblies are 18μL, 25μL, 55μL and 62.5μL.


BENEFIT/CONCLUSION: Error-Free Dispensing of Assay Buffers

When using blood testing kits, it is critical to utilize packaging components that are manufactured with high quality so accurate test results are produced. The assay buffer should be stored in a (LDPE) dropping bottle equipped with an extended controlled dropping assembly so accurate and reproducible drops are generated. Since WHEATON dropping bottles are equipped with a unique extended controlled dropping assembly, it allows for error-free dispensing of the assay buffer and accurate test results.
